Well, if April slowly moved on, May has flown by! Once things started opening up over here at the end of last month, my day to day kind of went into overdrive. What a strange couple of months! April that was so boring it’s almost like it never ended, and now here we are at the end of May and basically it has flown by, I don’t even know what happened to it. Good thing I take pictures of pretty much everything so I can have some sort of memory as to what’s been going on.
So the gyms opened up the first part of the month. Getting back to that everyday schedule gave me something to look forward to again. Then, stores started opening up some so I made a couple of trips to Jackson. Not exactly the same, and eating at a restaurant the first part of the month was a bit of a disappointment, but it was nice to get out.
Almost every Sunday this month, with the exception of one, Stephen and I have been to a local winery for pizza and wine in the vineyard. It’s been very relaxing and enjoyable, plus it doesn’t even seem like the world is any different out there and that’s been the best part. Small town life definitely has its benefits.
We got two new bee hives and it looks like the honey is flowing in one of the established hives. Hoping for some of that soon. Happy to say that the grape vines are making a comeback after last months frost. Little baby muscadines are starting to show up. And I was actually thinking we weren’t going to have a harvest this year at all. Silly me!
Last week we had our end of the school year gift exchange/pizza party. This school year definitely didn’t end how I ever thought it would, and I am a little disappointed by how my last year teaching ended, but it is what it is and I have officially graded my last paper ever! Very bittersweet that is for sure.
Now for the lows of the last several weeks:
A bad tire, a messed up rim, three crazy storms that knocked out power, downed many many trees, and tipped over the neighborhood trampolines.
And there was some ruined driveway art – not due to the storms. But, overall, things are going just fine. We are all happy and healthy and I couldn’t ask for more. As for now, the start of my summer, I foresee plenty of yard work and fruit picking in my immediate future.
And that’s all I have for today. Oh, and I tried to do Me Made May and wear my homemade wardrobe this month, but that only lasted about four days. Maybe next year. Have a great day, everyone!
